Venue: Darlington Hippodrome
Performed by The Russian State Ballet of Siberia Accompanied by The Orchestra of the Russian State Ballet. Every toy has a story, especially in this charming comedy of errors, a witty combination of antics and abracadabra, set in a doll maker's workshop. This light-hearted tale of mistaken identity and confused lovers follows mischievous Swanilda, her impetuous suitor Franz and the eccentric toymaker Dr.Coppelius as they are brought to life by sparkling choreography and the animated score of Delibes. Coppelia is perfect for first-time ballet goers, families and everyone in between. The critics said..."Dancing was sharp, precise and light of foot throughout..."
Running time: 110 minutes (approx.)
